A word of welcome from our family here at
Temple Baptist Church
As a group of believers, we warmly welcome you. We want you to experience the warmth and friendliness of a family when you come through the doors of our church. To help you feel at home and to become better acquainted with the God we serve.
Temple Baptist Church
Temple Baptist Church was founded by Bro. Frank Wood and has been a beacon of hope and encouragement to our community for over 50 years. From those early days of it's mere beginning Temple has grown to where we are today and remains a beacon of hope and encouragement not only to our local community but also throughout the world through the many missionaries we gladly support.
Who We Are
At Temple Baptist we are a group of believers who believe in a God of love, mercy and coming judgment. We are a group of believers who love teaching and learning from the word of God and reaching out to the community with the gospel message of Jesus Christ. Our main focus is to reach out to people were they are in life and help them become who God wants them to be.
Ministry with a Kingdom Vision
We have a missionary heart, an evangelistic zeal, and a servant's desire with a vision of the Kingdom. “The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor. He hath sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18, 19) Our ministry is caring for others in Christ's name and His love.

"Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. " Rev. 14:7 We want to glorify God through heart-felt worship, to “love God with all your heart."
Connect - Fellowship
We want to connect people to Christ and each other in fellowship. We value a spiritual journey taken in step with others.
Helping you feel like you belong is our mission. More than anything else, we are committed to helping people assimilate into the life of a member of God's family. Our commitment is helping the people of Chrst connect with one another in meaningful ways.
True biblical fellowship is about more than just friendship. It's about people being committed to each others emotional, spiritual, and physical well being. It is our hope that you'll discover Temple Baptist Church to be a place where you can belong. Helping you feel like you belong in the family of God and finding Jesus and a relatonship with Him Is what we're all about.
Grow Through Christian Education
We want to provide opportunities for people to grow spiritually. To “teach them all things” is discipleship.
We believe that spiritual growth begins with commitment. Building on the commitment to be a disciple of Christ, within the fellowship of Christian relationships, members learn the habits of a disciple. By God's grace these habits become life transforming, producing a life of moral excellence. In the words of Peter: "And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.." 2 Pet. 1:5-8. This is the full intent of the Purpose of Spiritual Maturity.
Our greatest desire and prayer is that you will become a mature Christian.
Study to show yourself approved to God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:1
Jesus calls us not only to come to Him but to go for Him (Matt. 28:19-20). This commission was given to every follower of Jesus. If you are part of God’s family, this is your commission. God’s love compels us to reach beyond our own needs and wants to others. Unlike secular humanitarians, we share a new life only possible through Christ. In showing love, we become living representatives of God for a world that desperately needs what only He can provide.
Our goal is to help grow the purpose of missions deeply in the heart of all our members. We want people to be empowered to share Christ effectively. To “go and make disciples” is our mission.
We want to equip people to serve. To “love your neighbor as yourself” is ministry. Jesus said, “… I, the Son of Man, came here not to be served but to serve others …” (Matthew 20:28). He is our example and has called each one of us as Christians to serve in ministry.
